About Ardboe Cross

Ardboe Cross dates from the tenth century. It may be the first High Cross built in Ulster. Standing at 18.5 feet high and 3.5 feet wide, this is the original stone cross, placed here over one thousand years ago. The twenty-two panels depict Old Testament stories and New Testament scenes. There are also remains of a church and abbey here. The abbey was founded by Saint Coleman in 590 and the current church ruin having been built during the sixteenth century.
